Conceptual artist Anne Mourier strongly believes that “Taking Care” is important and maypossibly be the only way to mend our broken society: “Taking Care” of our planet, “Taking Care” of things instead of replacing them, “Taking Care” of each other…
Mourier is proposing to do just that … like a parenthesis … the time of a dinner, a healthy fruit peeled for you, soft music, a white tea …
Please join us on May 23 or May 24 at 7:30pm for A Performance Dinner: Taking Care at SAM.
This invitation is personal and is not transferable.
Anne Mourier is a French-born and Brooklyn-based artist.
She is a woman. She is a daughter and a mother.
Her work is about the search for home.
Is home a pile of beautiful and methodically organized linens like the memories of her childhood or is it a womb of soft wool hiding sharp needles nestled in a broken glass? Does it have five sides like her little boxes? Is it the home of the goddess, mother of all? How does she worship her in order to belong? Can she bring her to life by painting her veins? Will she accept her if she builds her an altar? Is it home if there is a family inside? If she knits their portrait and they all look alike does she belong to this family? Where is the entrance? Is the door shaped like a vulva?
Where is the truth? Is home only a façade or a mirror?
